DEFINITIONS - DUTIABLE VALUE
The term “dutiable value” is defined by Division 5 of the Duties Act 2008. The following interpretation is provided as a guide only.
New Vehicle:
For a new vehicle (which includes a demonstration model that has been used for that purpose for not more than 2 months) that is a motor car, motor wagon or
motorcycle, the list price (see definition below), plus the price fixed by the manufacturer, importer or principle distributor as the additional retail selling price in
Western Australia for a particular kind of transmission or engine fitted to the vehicle that is not standard in a vehicle of that make and model (for example, the
set fee to upgrade a manual transmission to automatic, or to include a V8 or turbocharged engine).
Used Vehicle:
In relation to used vehicles - the amount for which the vehicle might reasonably be sold, free of encumbrance, in the open market. Where the dutiable value
or purchase price of a vehicle has been incorrectly stated the matter will be referred to the Office of State Revenue for investigation and possible prosecution.
List Price means the price that has been fixed by the manufacturer, importer or principle distributor as the retail selling price of that vehicle in Western Australia.
NOTE: Vehicles which are transferred for no monetary gain need to have an amount provided for which the vehicle might reasonably be sold, free of
encumbrances in the open market. i.e. its dutiable value.
Garaging Address (base of operation):
In accordance with section 5(3)(d) of the Road Traffic (Vehicles) Act 2012, vehicles cannot be licensed in Western Australia if they are garaged in another state.
You may be required to produce documentary proof of this.
The information you supply on this form may be disclosed to other government agencies where provided for in legislation. The Chief Executive Officer of the
Department of Transport also releases aggregated statistical information to third parties. However, your personal identifying information will not be released to
these persons without your explicit consent.
WARNING: Restrictions on vehicle transfers
There may be sanctions applied by the Department of the Attorney General in respect of unpaid fines that prevent the grant, renewal or
transfer of a vehicle licence. Until such time the sanction has been removed, the vehicle is considered unlicensed and continued use of the
vehicle will be in contravention of the Road Traffic (Vehicles) Act 2012.
Before considering the sale or purchase of a vehicle, the vehicle licence status may be checked at www.transport.wa.gov.au.
Vehicle owners that might have outstanding infringement notices or court fines may contact the Fines Enforcement Registry on
